Hello there.

I am very new to gardening (only really got into it within the last 6 months or so) but have really caught the bug, now, and very keen to learn.

I recently bought a 5-tier mini greenhouse and, for the first few days it was brilliant - some seeds that were lying dormant for weeks suddenly sprouted.

However, one of the days was particularly hot and sunny and I had some chilli pepper and bell pepper seedlings that wilted and died.

I would be really grateful for any advice on how to actually use a mini greenhouse - i.e. I realise, now, that you cannot just water everything in the morning and leave the door shut all day.

What was the temperature inside? You don't really want it to get over 85-90F.

The sun has alot of power behind it and is hard to control the internal temp inside of mine when ambient temps get above 65-70 F with a temp controller and fans but mine is probably smaller than yours. I'm guessing at a certain ambient temp and full sun, you will have to open the door or vents. What temp? You'll have to experiment and find out.
